Day 43

Getting your grocery budget under control can be hard to do. But it can be done with planning and coupons! Sit down and plan your meals for under $6.00 a meal. We have 5 people in our family..... the below meals are examples of meals for under $6.00. Most of the time we even have enough left overs for lunch the next day.
